One of the Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference’s most popular annual features is the Killer Nashville C. Auguste Dupin Detective Award Crime Scene staged by former Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) Assistant Director Dan Royse.
The crime scene is a compilation of real crime scenes special agencies have encountered throughout the decades of the TBI here in Tennessee.
Attendees gather clues and try to solve the case.
The person who best interprets the clues and solves the murder wins the Killer Nashville C. Auguste Dupin Detective Award, which includes a discounted registration to the next year’s Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference.
There is no fee to play…but watch your back.
